Free outdoor movie screening as part of Hispanic Heritage Month

The Union County Board of County Commissioners invites residents to a free screening of the Oscar winning film, “Encanto” on September 23 at Warinanco Park, located at 1 Park Drive in Roselle. Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m.

The event is free for all to attend and no registration is required. Free popcorn will be provided and there will be ice cream available for purchase.

“The County Commissioners are pleased to provide an opportunity for Union County families to come together for a fun evening as part of our celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month,” said Commissioner Chair Rebecca L. Williams. “We hope to see residents of all ages come out and enjoy Encanto.”

Encanto is a 2021 American computer-animated musical fantasy comedy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Its soundtrack went viral and reached number one on the US Billboard 200 and UK Compilation Albums charts. “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” topped both the US Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles Chart for multiple weeks. The film was nominated for three awards at the 94th Academy Awards, winning Best Animated Feature

Encanto follows a multigenerational Colombian family, the Madrigals, led by matriarch Abuela Alma whose children and grandchildren receive magical gifts from a miracle that helps them serve the people in their rural community called the Encanto. When Mirabel, Alma’s granddaughter and the only family member with no special gift, learns that the family is losing their magic, she sets out to find out what is happening, and save her family and their magical house.

Residents are encouraged to bring their own snacks and chairs or blankets.
